Ride The Lightning – Metallica

But damn it, it ain’t right There is someone else controlling me Death in the air Strapped in the electric chair This can’t be happening to me Who made you God to say “I’ll take your life from you!” Flash before my eyes Now it’s time to die Burning in my brain I can feel […]

The Small Hours – Metallica

And you will see, Just call my name and I’ll be there. You cannot touch me, You would not dare, I am the chill that’s in the air. (chorus) And I try to get through to you, In my own special way, As the barriers crumble, At the end of the day. Dark rivers are […]

King Nothing – Metallica

The killing and hatred’s a terrible sight Reports come in of a heavy attack Message recieved, we’re moving back Preparations are made for the journey back Hints on survival, supplies are packed No more nights in this eternal hall Destination is simple, we move out (Chorus) Killing time, your life’s on the line Killing time, […]

The Memory Remains – Metallica

Mirror vain Gone insane But the memory remains Heavy rings on fingers wave Another star denies the grave See the nowhere crowd, cry the nowhere tears of honour Like twisted vines that grow, that hide and swallow mansions whole And dim the light of an already faded primadonna Fortune, fame Mirror vain Gone insane Fortune, […]

Through The Never – Metallica

Universe much too big to see Time and space never ending Disturbing thoughts, Questions pending Limitations of human understanding Too quick to criticize Obligation to survive We hunger to be alive All that is, Ever Ever was Will be ever Twisting Turning Through the never In the dark, See past our eyes Pursuit of truth […]

Harvester Of Sorrow – Metallica

Planting seeds of hate I’ve loved, Turned to hate Trapped far beyond my fate I give You take This life that I forsake Been cheated of my youth You turned this lie to truth Anger Misery You’ll suffer unto me Harvester of sorrow Language of the mad Harvester of sorrow Pure black looking clear My […]

The Day That Never Comes – Metallica

Loverman – Metallica

There’s a devil waiting outside your door (How much longer?) There’s a devil waiting outside your door (How much longer?) And he’s bucking and braying and pawing at the floor (How much longer?) And he’s howling with pain, crawling up the walls (How much longer?) There’s a devil waiting outside your door (How much longer?) […]

That Was Just Your Life – Metallica

Like a blind man that is strapped into the speeding driver’s seat, Like a face that learned to speak, when all it knew was how to bite, Like a misery that keeps me focused though I’ve gone astray, Like an endless nightmare that I must awaken from each day Like Conviction, a premonition, not worthy […]

Trapped Under Ice – Metallica

Woken up, I’m still locked in his shell Frozen soul, frozen down to the core Break the ice I can’t take it anymore Freezing Can’t move at all Screaming Can’t hear my call I am dying to live Cry out I’m trapped under ice Crystalized as I lay here and rest Eyes of glass stare […]

My Friend Of Misery – Metallica

Fearing no one was listening to you They say the empty can rattles the most The sound of your own voice must soothe you Hearing only what you want to hear And knowing only what you’ve heard You You’re smothered in tragedy You’re out to save the world Misery You insist that the weight of […]

Of Wolf And Man – Metallica

Out from the new day’s mist I have come I hunt Therefore I am Harvest the land Taking the fallen lamb Off through the new day’s mist I run Out from the new day’s mist I have come We shift Pulsing the earth Company we keep Roaming the land while you sleep Shape shift Shape […]

Damage Inc. – Metallica

charging hard and no one’s gonna give in Living on your knees, conformity or dying on your feet for honesty Inbred, our bodies work as one bloody, but never cry submission Following our instinct not a trend go against the grain until the end Blood will follow blood Dying time is here Damage Incorporated Slamming […]

Stone Cold Crazy – Metallica

Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning I was dreaming I was Al Capone. Rumor going round, gotta clear out of town, smelling like a dry fish bone. Here come the law, gonna break down the door, carry me away once more. Never, never, never want it anymore. Gotta get away from this stone cold […]

Suppose I say, you cut the roots To make the tree survive Just let me kill you for a while Just let me kill you for a smile Just let me kill you once I’m oh so born to die Ohh, I hunger I hunger I eat Born Into Attitude Asleep at the wheel Throw […]

The Judas Kiss – Metallica

When the world has turned its back When the days have turned pitch black When the fear abducts your tongue When the fire’s dead and gone So, what now? Where go I? When you think it’s all said and done. When you are the ostracized Selfish ridden dead goodbyes Twisting on the tourniquet When the […]

The God That Failed – Metallica

Astronomy – Metallica

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst Out at you from their hiding place Like acid and oil on a madman’s face His reasons tend to fly away Like lesser birds on the four winds, yeah Like silver scrapes in May Now the sands become a crust And most of you have gone away, then […]

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) – Metallica

no one leaves and no one will Moon is full, never seems to change just labeled mentally deranged Dream the same thing every night I see our freedom in my sight No locked doors, No windows barred No things to make my brain seem scarred Sleep my friend and you will see that dream is […]

The Unforgiven – Metallica

And quickly he’s subdued Through constant pained disgrace The young boy learns their rules With time the child draws in This whipping boy done wrong Deprived of all his thoughts The young man struggles on and on he’s known A vow unto his own That never from this day His will they’ll take away What […]

The Prince – Metallica

Now I see his face, I see his smile Such a lonely place, no golden mile Eyes tell of morbid tales of his black heart His deeds through ages past tell of his part See his face, see his smile Time to die Angel from below, change my dreams I want for glory’s hour, for […]
